Facial hair, from the brows to the lip, can grow much quicker than the rest of the body. More frequent trips may be needed to minimise regrowth, think every 2-3 weeks. The good news? The old wives’ tale that hair will grow back thicker post-wax is exactly that – an urban legend. Regular removal can actually reduce regrowth. Result. Heading to the salon is less messy than DIY’ing it; leave your face in the hands of a trained professional, and you’ll be hair-free in no time – well, fifteen minutes.
Here’s when to wax your body parts (if you want to)
Brows, legs, those cheeky chin hairs – you can wax wherever you want, if you want to. The only rule? Timings. Hair needs to be long enough for wax to grab from the root, and that varies across the body. Technical stuff, sort of, but we’ve got your back (and front): here’s a timeline of when to wax each body part, so all you need to worry about is which pair of wide-leg trousers to wear afterwards.
